SPOKANE VALLEY — Hannah James tallied a goal and an assist Thursday as Pullman High School blanked East Valley 5-0 in a nonleague girls’ soccer match.
Freshman goalkeeper Lillian Cobos recorded her first high school shutout and her twin sister Amelia notched an assist while playing a role in the Greyhounds’ sharp defense, coach Doug Winchell said.

Because these teams meet three times this season, this first matchup doesn’t count in the 2A Greater Spokane League standings.
Also scoring goals were Alene Itani, Meg Limburg, Kyla Shulenberger and Elise French.
